MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – SAM AND RYAN’S INTIMATE RED LODGE WEDDING

Congratulations to Sam and Ryan!  It was my honor to photograph their intimate wedding at their family cabin on Rock Creek outside of Red Lodge Montana.  It was a stunning Montana setting in the woods right next to the churning white water of Rock Creek.  Here’s a quick peak at a few of my favorites.  The first look was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever witnessed as a photographer and of course I love when the father of the bride gives his little girl one last big hug.  Stay tuned for more to come from this beautiful Montana wedding soon!

MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – PILOT PEAK SPECTACULAR!

I am a Montana wedding photographer but part of my job is to scout epic locations to take my clients for wedding portraits, engagement sessions, honeymoon sessions, etc.  So I am constantly exploring my new home in Montana to find awesome locations.  Well this is one of them!  Pilot Peak is technically in Wyoming, but it’s hard to tell what state you’re in around this area, as the Beartooth/Absaroka wilderness follows the Montana/Wyoming border.  This spot is about 2 hours from Billings Montana and is only about 30 minutes from the top of the Beartooth Pass outside of Red Lodge Montana.  There is a little lake nestled in the woods below and I can’t wait to take a wedding client down there for an epic session!  Who wants to go?

MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – CONGRATS JENNA AND MIKE!

Congrats to Jenna and Mike!  They had a beautiful wedding at the Moss Mansion in downtown Billings Montana last weekend and this was one of my favorite photos from inside the historic mansion.  I love the way a freshly married bride and groom look at each other after the wedding ceremony when their emotions are overflowing.  Even the toughest of guys like Mike can’t keep their emotions under wraps.  Right after the ceremony is always my favorite part of a wedding day and I’m glad the Paul Bellinger Photography team was able to pull of this beautiful image during this brief moment.  There will be more to come from this awesome wedding on the blog soon!  Until then, congrats and thank you Jenna and Mike!

MONTANA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER – ENGAGEMENT ADVENTURES

Montana is a beautiful wedding destination that attracts couples from all around the country.  I feel so lucky to live here with my amazing wife and work in a profession that enables us to explore this beautiful area.  All of these photos are from a recent engagement session adventure to Tofino, British Columbia.  Naturally, my wife and I took the scenic route, exploring Idaho, Washington, the Palouse, the Olympic Peninsula, Pacific Rim National Park Canada, Sea to Sky Highway Canada, Banff National Park Canada, Glacier National Park USA, and we drove up and down Western Montana on two different routes.  We saw bears, bald and golden eagles, elk, mountain goats, a coyote, a fox and birds galore.  We spent some time with our awesome clients, Jenny and Daniel, who took us to some beautiful beaches, canoeing to a tiny lake island, and to two amazing seafood restaurants (and an equally impressive food truck that serves poutine).  I can’t wait for the wedding adventure we’ll have in Big Sky Montana this summer.  We made some beautiful engagement photos right on the Pacific Ocean.  It was a dream week with my wife, who had never been West of Bozeman Montana, had never seen the Pacific Ocean and had never been to Idaho, Washington, or Canada.  I’m so lucky to have a partner like her to explore with!  She’s also the navigator and she watches to make sure bears and mountain lions don’t sneak up behind me while I’m making photos!  So here’s a few photos I’m grateful to have made with her.
We found these snowy foggy trees and pristine pond in Kootenay National Park Canada.  We stopped to read a sign about a mother grizzly and two cubs that were in the area, and that we found soon after. 
It was very refreshing to spend some time in the magnificent Canadian Rockies, but my favorite mountain photo of the trip was this black and white of the Howe Ridge from Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park Montana. 
After being in the mountains for days, it was nice to return to the prairie of Western Montana and be greeted with a beautiful prairie sunset near Judith Gap Montana.

MONTANA PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER – BABU PORTRAIT #2

This is the second photo in my portrait series of my brother in law Kaushik “Babu” Mukherjee. Babu stayed with us in Billings Montana for three weeks and during that span we did several portrait sessions together. Some of our sessions were short, such as this one where Babu is lit with all natural window light in my studio. Other sessions were more complex with intricate studio lighting, such as the first Babu portrait I featured here. We had a lot of fun and I think Babu learned a lot more about photography than he ever wanted too! Thank you Babu!

Tip for photographers: This photo is lit with all natural window light. Babu is standing only a couple of feet from the window and there is an 4’x8’ white reflector to his right (camera left). That’s it!
